US Central Command says it carried out strike targeting al-Qaeda militants nearby but did not hit house of worship"We did not target, nor did we strike a mosque. We targeted an al-Qaeda gathering across the street from a mosque. The mosque does not appear to be damaged following the strike," spokesperson Major Josh T Jaques told The Independent.
"We are aware of the reports of civilian casualties and we are looking into it," he added.
Photos shared by activists reportedly from the scene showed bomb debris carrying serial numbers which identified the weapons used as American made Hellfire missiles. Powerful Al-Qaeda affiliated rebel group Ahrar al-Sham also said in a statement that they also believed US planes had carried out the deadly bombing of civilians.
First of all....I choose to place more trust in "US Central Command," than I do in "Al-Qadea affiliated activists....."
(But, that is for each of us to decide for ourselves. If you wish to place trust in Al-Qaeda, so be it.
What is NOT in the link (at least I could not find it...), is any thing suggesting that Trump "ordered" this strike.
YES as CnC he IS responsible for it. But, your thread title is patently dishonest.
